Purchase and Register Join Together

New Users...

The unregistered version of Join Together will operate in Demo Mode during which all of its features are available and unrestricted. However, in Demo Mode the volume-level of the exported file will be sharply reduced after a few minutes and through the duration of the file.

A registration code for Join Together is $5.00.

After your payment is received you will be emailed a registration code and instructions which will remove Join Together's volume-level restriction. You'll also enable me to continue working on Join Together and make it work better for you!

You can make safe and secure payments using your credit card by clicking the "Buy Now" button below.


Versions of Join Together before v7.0.0 cannot be updated. You must purchase a new registration code for the current version.

If your current Join Together registration was purchased for a pre-7.0.0 version after December 31, 2013 contact me at the email address below for good news.

Still Rather Try the Old Version?

Join Together v6.1.3 was released on February 12, 2012 for OS X 10.6-10.8. It does not officially support iTunes 11 or later and will not operate on OS X 10.10 or later. It requires QuickTime Player 7 even if QuickTime Player X is already installed. Additionally, some features of v6.1.3 are no longer supported on non-PowerPC machines. You can download it here. Good luck.
